Interment Processs


We understand that the death of a loved one is overwhelming. The Town of Drumheller wishes to extend help to you during this difficult time in your life.

Contrary to common belief, the death of a friend or a family member does not only mean contacting a funeral service provider. The process, however, need not be complicated.

We are always prepared to provide efficient service and answer all of your questions.

There are two types of interment in the cemetery: a casket burial or cremains.

Cremains can be interred in a cemetery plot or in a columbarium. 

A standard cemetery plot can hold a maximum of two caskets plus four cremains.

With this in mind, we need to know if two caskets will eventually reside in the same plot, as additional preparation is required when the first casket is interred.

Cremains plots and columbarium niches can hold a maximum of two cremains.

Standard cemetery plots or cremains plots, as well as columbarium niches, can be pre-purchased to assist the family in creating a family plot.

We are required to have a copy of the Burial Permit on file regardless of the type of interment.

If you wish to install a headstone to commemorate your loved one, please consult our Cemetery By-law for further information.

In any case, however, we require notice of the installation and the work required.

On this note,  please complete a cemetery work permit form

We are committed to helping you in this time of need. If you have any questions, please call (403) 823-1302.
